  1. The powder-puff 7R vs the RS3 barge thread!

    Road testers always seem to use the Golf 7R as the benchmark for a good all round uberhatch so: Golf 7R 1 - RS3 0 BTW, what's a powder-puff?
  2. Welcome VWROC folk!!

    Colin has a large ring of confidence Allegedly

    Ah yes but the Aston was only ever marketed as a Coupe. Wiki might call it a hatchback but as far as I can remember the word 'hatchback' was never used until the Golf came out in the '70s. Even the BMW 2002 example I gave above was called 'Touring' which of course BMW kept for all its 'estate' car versions Can anyone add further to this?
  4. Very loud RS3!

    I was parked up near Telford working in my car (as you do..) and I heard this RS3 arrive. Obviously tuned, with huge tailpipes (possibly Miltek?) and a noise like thunder. Fabulous!

    OK. what about this Citroen Traction Avant, introduced in 1938? They were 'warmed up' and rallied in the '40s after the war

    Good shout Danno. I actually owned a DB2/4 Mk2 in the late 70's! Technically though I'm not sure whether it can be described as a hatch if you use the definition of hatchback as a car having 3 or 5 doors. In its day the Aston was described as a coupe with a rear opening window (as indeed were cars such as The AC Aceca, Jag E Type etc) rather than a door. Discuss...

    What about the 1971 BMW 1802 Touring? That was a performance hatch and it preceded the Simca by two years!
